Uzbekistan has hands down the best architecture in Central Asia. With a rich history of over 2000 years, ancient cities which were major stops along the historic Silk Road, exotic native cuisine and elaborate Islamic monuments, Uzbekistan presents its visitors with a unique and memorable experience.

Capital Tashkent is a melting pot of modern and Soviet-era architecture. Khast Imom Square (also known as Khast-Imam or Hast-Imam) is the heart of the city and this mosque complex houses the Moyie Mubarek Library Museum known for its 7th-century Osman Quran. Located under a green dome, the historic Chorsu Bazaar is a great place to buy local goods and experience local life. The Amir Timur Museum, the State Museum of History of Uzbekistan and the statue of Amir Timur are other highlights. And finally, head over to the 375-metre-high Tashkent Tower’s observation deck for a 360-degree view of Tashkent.

Situated in the central part of Uzbekistan, Bukhara is known as the “holiest city in Central Asia”. Its architectural heritage dates back to at least 2000 years. The city was once an important Silk Road stop and a hub of Islamic culture and architecture. The well-preserved mosques, madrassas, bazaars and caravanserais all tell the story of its ancient glory. The ruins of the remarkable Ark of Bukhara, the early-19th-century built Char Minar, and the 16th-century Kalon Mosque are just a few examples of the city’s stunning architecture. Khiva is another major Silk Road city and its well-preserved historical architecture is among the best in the country. Walking through the city and admiring its stunning buildings like the Tosh-Hovli Palace and Pahlavon Mahmud Mausoleum, feels like stepping into another era.

The country’s second largest city Samarkand was a major Silk Road stop and is the highlight of Uzbekistan’s historical past. Registan Square is the top attraction in the city and it is home to three of the world’s oldest madrassas. The nearby Gur-e-Amir Mausoleum is the final resting place of Amir Timur, the founder of the Timurid Empire. To witness some stunning Timurid-era tilework, visit the necropolis of Shah-i-Zinda, located in north-eastern Samarkand. The city is also home to Bibi-Khanym Mosque, one of the biggest mosques in the world.

Uzbekistan draws in curious travellers from all over the world, who wish to get a glimpse of life in Central Asia. Its ornate architecture is its biggest attraction and its historical significance and friendly locals add to the country’s charm.

The historical city of Bukhara is known as the “holiest city in Central Asia”.
